- Full Text
From the wreck of the WILLIAM HUNTER. -- The tug FOREST CITY, Captain Wetzel, arrived here yesterday from the wreck of the schooner WILLIAM HUNTER, a mention of which was made a few days ago as having occurred at Niagara Reef, neat the head of the lake. The tug FOREST CITY took up to the wreck a steam pump, on the schooner F. L. WELLS, and after placing on board the pumps and attempting to get the HUNTER afloat it was found that she was broken in the middle, and that it was impossible to raise her. The expedition then proceeded to see what could be done with the cargo, and succeeded in getting out 2,000 bushels of dry wheat and some that was wet. A good share of the outfit was also saved and brought to this port. The schooner HUNTER will probably be abandoned by the underwriters.
Monday, October 30, 1876
The schooner HUNTER, laden with 8,000 bushels of grain, which ran upon a reef off Locust Point last summer, recently drifted off the reef and is now lying off Kelly's Island, directly on the steamer route to Put-In-Bay. The wreck will be removed as soon as navigation opens.
